June Special Edition - a special interview with Cayla Kluver

Hi folks! Michelle here. I'm excited to share with you a special edition for June - an interview with fantasy writer Cayla Kluver. Her book, Legacy, comes out today. I was lucky enough to get a chance to sit down with her and chat about Legacy and her inspirational story of how she became a published author. Come give the interview a listen! She's a doll and you also get to hear some pretty ah-mazing Midwestern accents toward the end. Hehe!

June Podcast

This month, we had the pleasure of doing a Skype interview with the utterly delightful Myra McEntire about her debut novel, Hourglass, which is published by Egmont and out in stores today. It's a fantastic, fast-paced book about time travel and romance that kept us both completely captivated.

So tune in to the June episode of Authors are ROCKSTARS! for our book picks of the month- Hereafter, by Tara Hudson, and Beauty Queens, by Libba Bray- and enjoy Myra McEntire's thoughts on speaking Southern, the necessity of hoodies and fuzzy socks for successful writing, and choosing the right literary agent.
